Why are Sola Flowers The Best Natural Diffusers?
Sola flowers are one of the most effective diffusers due to its history, artistry, and natural properties. The sola flower is made of the sola pith plant, which is typically found in South Asia. It is a very leafy plant, but only the stalk of this is used to make paper products.
Creating the Sola flower takes impeccable craftsmanship. First, the plant has to be harvested and then left in the sun to dry for 3-4 days. Once dry and slightly brittle, the dry paper is rolled several times over and then cut and shaped into a beautiful floral design.
The porous properties of Sola Wood allow it to efficiently absorb scented oils and diffuse fragrance by providing a greater evaporation surface than other diffusing materials like reed sticks. Even a small sola flower diffuser can comfortably cover a larger space. You can control the level of fragrance diffusion by adding or removing sola flowers and/or reeds.

In general, one sola flower diffuser will diffuse effectively for 2 to 3 months of continuous use in a vase that holds several ounces. Brew+Bloom’s Bloominescents which is a sola flower diffuser have been known to last for 6 months up to a year. Since the wooden petals can hold the fragrance, you can still enjoy the fragrance for some time after the bottle becomes empty.
